An energetic opening fast section eventually gives way to a slower section before the opening mood returns in increasing intensity to the conclusion. - the composer.
Frequent meter and tempo changes, subito dynamic shifts, technical challenges are most demanding in the first trumpet, though other parts keep quite active and have brief soloistic moments. -pc
